Kiyv-Amsterdam, April 6, 2012
The Ukrainian delegation arrived in Amsterdam on April 4 and visited the bell-casting plant, where Bishop Alexander served the prayer for the beginning of all good things and sprinkled the production equipment with holy water.
Traditionally, as a sign of cooperation in the casting of the bell, the blessed coins were placed into the bell. Thus, on behalf of Metropolitan Volodymyr, Archbishop Alexander laid a golden coin into the bell. The head of the Parish Council Igor Lysov put the coins collected by the parishioners of the Holy Transfiguration church.
